Has Social Media Stopped Being Social?

Today, social media is a wide range of online communication, and it’s not going away any time soon.

You go to a conference or even a church, and the speaker wants you to hashtag or tweet.

But with so many platforms, it’s hard to connect and interact. Most of us post and ghost.

Twitter posts are gone in seconds. Don’t blink; you may miss one. It’s like speed networking without networking.

 

The Twitter Bird Flys at Warp Speed

I jumped on Internet Live Stats as I was writing this post, and Twitter numbers were changing in rapid-fire speed.

At the beginning of this sentence is was at 513,179,828 tweets for the day, but by the time I finished this sentence, it was at 513,664,235.

No, I didn’t leave to get a cup of coffee.

If you seriously want to follow an influencer, expert, or friends, use Hootsuite with it’s Twitter Integration.

Let me show you how you can quickly and easily follow your favorite people–and connect. It’s time to get social.

 

Twitter Lists

I follow Jonathan Milligan, but I still miss valuable content. Here’s what I did to fix the problem.

On Twitter, notice “Lists” on the left menu.

If I click “Lists,” I can create categories to group my favorite experts. I could put Jonathan under many categories, such as Podcast or Writer, but Marketing would make sense to me. You can choose anything you want. Check out my lists in the next image.

Create a List In Twitter

I’ve created several lists and named them.

When you create a new List, Twitter will recommend matches for your list title.

You can scan the suggested businesses or people and add them to your list.

If you have a specific person in mind, use the “Search People” section to find and add them.

Don’t worry; you can edit your lists or add more later.

In Hootsuite, Add the List to Your Twitter Stream

Now, you get to see the magic happen.

Go to your Hootsuite account. Make sure you add and connect your Twitter account.

Click “Add Social Network,” and you’ll create a Twitter tab in the Hootsuite dashboard.

Scroll to the right of your streams, and you’ll see stream options. This will create the various columns you see below under the Twitter tab.

Click “List,” and you can add any category you created on Twitter.

Now I can see Jonathan Milligan’s posts under “Marketing,” but I can also see when he mentions me and say, “thank you.” (My mama taught me right.)
